You deserve nice, cool things. We all do. So, every week one of the BYT editors will share what’s on top of their wish list right now so you know what it is we are coveting right now, and you can covet it as well (or even buy it). Simple as that.
This go-round we’ve got Megan Burns, BYT NYC Editor, who feels a little weird about this because she’s minimalist AF!
1. A TICKET TO ICELAND!
They are currently going for REAL CHEAP (like under $300 round-trip) out of BWI and EWR via WOW Air, and since I loved it so much when I went two years ago for Iceland Airwaves, I can only help but point y’all in the Íslensku direction. Honestly, you could make it a weekend trip EASILY // skip Blue Lagoon, do local Reykjavik pools (they are heated, so you can look up at the stars whilst floating for like, $5) and you’re sorted for a v. relaxing and affordable time. Just don’t eat out at restaurants as they are hella expensive, and make sure to shop at Bónus and cook at your Airbnb if you can!
What the hell is a “Windbuster”?! (It is a “Windbreaker”, Megan.) Anyway, I bought a $10 Gap Kids bloody fangs wool sweater from the boys’ clearance section of Marshalls yesterday, so I felt I’d take a deep-dive into what the rest of GK had to offer, and do you know what? I really like this fucking WINDBUSTER/BREAKER! It’s on sale for just $25, so if you’re able to fit into a boys’ XXL (many people can do this), DO IT.
3. The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson
As mentioned above, I am minimalist AF. Swedish death cleaning appeals to me SO MUCH, so obviously I would recommend this book (a guide) to you – yes, it’s a bit of a morbid concept on the surface, but if you can get past that, it’s practical dot com, and I wish everyone would downsize accordingly!
4. Bulbasaur Planter from Etsy
I am a goddamn sucker for succulents, and these take the cake. Yes, $29 is a little pricey in my book, but also kind of super worth it. If you don’t appreciate Pokémon, I don’t appreciate you.
5. YouTube TV
I have used YouTube TV’s trial subscription before, and it was the most magical thirty days of my life – it gets ALL the channels (basically), and they all stream like a dream. Yes, it’s $35, which I’d consider some real bullshit since I refuse to give up other niceties like Netflix, but if you split it between yourself and two other humans (I think it can be used simultaneously on up to three devices at a time), then it’s pretty much $12 a month per person that you’re sharing it with. SO. (Things to consider.) The Olympics is (are?) also coming up very soon, so I would HIGHLY recommend you at least take advantage of the free trial in February.
That’s all. For this week.
